The Fiske Guide to Colleges

This is an excellent supplement to our college counseling services for students who are struggling to decide where to apply. This leading guide to more than 300 colleges and universities has been an indispensable source of information for college-bound students and their parents; hip, honest, and straightforward, it delivers an insider's look at the academic climates and the social and extracurricular scenes at several hundred of the “best and most interesting” schools in the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, and Ireland. It denotes “best buys” (schools that deliver the best education at the most reasonable costs), candid comments from current students, lists of each school's strongest programs, the acceptance rates and average test scores of admitted students, and insight into the social scenes.
